Microsoft Office 365 Beta Available to the Public
Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription service. Office 365 has plans for professionals and small businesses, midsize businesses and enterprises, and education. Tony Bradley at PCWorld writes, “There is a lot to like about the cloud-based suite, but one of the most compelling features of the service might just be the price.”
Email & Calendar - Office 365 gives you access to email, calendar, and contacts from virtually anywhere, at any time, on desktops, laptops, and mobile devices*—while it helps to protect against viruses and spam.
Office Web Apps - Office Web Apps are convenient online companions to Microsoft Word, Microsoft Excel, Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft OneNote that offer you an easy way to access, view, and edit documents directly in your web browser.
Websites & Collaboration - Office 365 enables you to access and share documents and insights, contacts, calendars, and tasks in a single location and from a shared computer or smartphone.
IM & Online Meetings - Microsoft Lync Online helps you find and quickly connect with the right person through instant messaging (IM), Lync video calls, or online meetings from within the Office applications you already use every day.
Microsoft Office 365 provides four plans for enterprises: Office 365 (Plan E1), Office 365 (Plan E2), Office 365 (Plan E3), and Office 365 (Plan E4).
